Newton 59 


In this year which 
is the extension of 
the Holy Year to 
the whole world, 
". . . this time of 
grace and salvation 
. . . ", we dedicate 
our Year Book, 
1951, to Very 
Reverend Mother 

Mai ie-Therese de Lescure, Superior General of the Society of the Sacred Heart, 
mother of that great family whose children are one throughout the world; and who 
are one also, as she has shown to us, with the greater family of the Church who 
share one Father. . . . 

"Protect, Lord, the Vicar of Thy Son on earth. 


it is through him "that Thy will is made known to us. It is with him we pray that 

all men "may become as a solid rock against which the fury of Thy enemies will 

break in vain." The 

Class of 1 95 1 of 

Newton College of 

the Sacred Heart, 

only twenty-nine of 

the 1 13,000 children 

of the Sacred Heart, 

pledge themselves to 

give him now and 

always what he asks.

Miss y. Patricia Marsh, Miss Teddy Mulkern, Dr. Elizabeth Makkay and Senor Regalado, whose 
schedules did not allow for the frivolities of picture-taking. Dr. Paul Cox McGrath who has 
deserted us for the Pentagon and Miss Laure Thibert, who is studying at Marquette University, 
will always be remembered by the Class of '51 as two very patient and interested faculty members. 
Miss Helen Bellows who so gallantly suffered through the required Latin course with our class 
deserves more than a mere "thank you" as well as Monsignor Matthew Stapleton, lecturer on Sacred 
Scriptures and Reverend W. Seavey Joyce, S.J., our devoted chaplain. But to all who have helped 
us we can only say that we will always try to live up to the ideals which they have given us during 
our Newton days.

Mimi went to Ireland on a pilgrimage and bought tickets on the Irish sweepstakes; she went 
to North Conway to ski and made round trips on the ski-mobile. No wonder she always has 
a good story to tell— so typically Mimi-ish. When she laughs, we laugh with her; when she 
blushes, we tease her some more. But even in the middle of one of her famous remarks, 
Mimi's sense of responsibility and savoir vivre are present. She sees what is to be done and 
does it. No one is unimportant, nothing too smdl to be disregarded where Mimi is concerned 
and for this we love her . . . our class president for four years.

Pat's usually going around in circles but always getting somewhere. She wants to do everything, 
to see everything. She searches out the new things of the world, but delights in the old, and 
fluctuates from the very serious to the almost frivolous. She breaks from a deep frown to a 
bright smile. Only her determination and her subtle sense of humor could carry her through 
the endless N.F.C.CS. meetings, mimeographed letters and short stories, and bring her out 
on top. Always gay, ever willing to sing, Pat is a constant joy.

The insistent jingle of a handful of coins and laughter muffled by phone-booth doors are 
familiar sounds, for this little girl with the wide green eyes calls Garden City every other 
night. Those stories of Dickie's latest adventure told with the impish grin of Carol the tease, 
and the artful voice of Carol the mimic, top even her daring bids of seven no-trump and 
her nimble execution of the Charleston. As our energetic and efficient Catholic Action 
President, ably directing and focusing our apojtolic works, Carol has brought joy and hope 
to others and happiness to us.

With a determined step Elaine sets out to conquer worlds, but she is perfectly natural, 
completely ingenuous. Difficulties never upset her optimism. She can find humor in almost 
any situation, and often provides her own. To us, Elaine is a stunning, smartly dressed young 
lady on her way to the symphony in an ancient touring car; a figure clutching a sheaf of 
Chopin and Rachmaninoff waiting in ambush for the unsuspecting to pass . . . always a gay

A true mimic and a born actress, Anne finds "all the world's a stage." Her exuberant 
vitality fits her flaming hair. No one can describe an adventure as Anne can. She talks with 
her whole self . . . wide sweeping gestures, incessant tossing of the head, quick steps up and 
down, a tone of voice which says: "Nothing quite like this has ever happened before." But 
she has perspective, and it brings the make-believe of the theater into focus with the routine 
of every day life. In Anne are combined the maturity of womanhood and the impetuosity 
of youth.

"What's new" and "Ellen" are synonymous terms . . . they just go together. An intent N.S.A. 
worker, she will tell you all about the organization's latest plans or if it is bargains that you 
want, she can tell you what the basement has to offer this week. Books play a big part in 
Ellen's life, but because of her extensive interests, they are not confined to any one subject. 
She willingly discusses anything from symphonic scores to the Thomistic answer to false 
philosophies. But there are other phases of Ellen's life that could never have been learned 
from a book: just witness her tea dance skill and the personal flavor of her ensembles.

Remember a Byzantine Madonna in a feast tableau and yon remember Jackie. Her fascinating 
braids accent her classic features: features which are undisturbed by the tick of the clock, by 
exams, or by her passionate conducting of the Boston Symphony recordings, but which can be 
altered by intermittent dance routines varying from interpretative to the soft shoe, and a 
questioning laughter which bursts forth at the slightest provocation. Not preoccupied with 
pseudo-significant issues, "Yackie" finds enjoyment even in the little things of life, and her 
inherent generosity helps others to share this same enjoyment.

If a social butterfly can have her feet firmly on the ground, Helen is such a one. She is a 
"daa-ah-ling" constantly jumping about, whether just excited and happy, or teaching not-so-apt 
pupils the rudiments of ballet. And half the time we see her flitting about, it is to bring 
someone somewhere in the "bus" or looking for someone who needs lodging for a night. 
On the ground, she is seeking the culture of an educated woman. Her hours are filled with 
courses in art, opera and symphony. Helen is always correct, from the white kid gloves to 
the priceless expressions filled with the just proper amount of inflection. Truly, a proper

Mary's chief interest is other people. There is no problem so insignificant, no happening so 
commonplace that she will not listen and share it with yon. She knows what is good for 
everyone, from long walks to thick steaks. That is why she is the confidante of half the 
college. Mary has her own ideas, firmly evident but calmly stated. She is sensitive to beauty 
in the bold and the delicate. But she knows how to give herself to others without showering 
herself upon them. She is gracious; that is why her presence makes us happy.

Ask Berta and you will get free advice firmly given on any problem that may arise. She is 
full of wisdom and experience and readily dispenses both. Already a successful teacher, she 
has proved that size is not essential in commanding trying classroom situations. She is a tiny 
source of power. Her sparkling vitality, dark striking eyes and expressive hands enliven 
everything she does, everything she says. She manages to be a woman of immovable convictions, 
and at the same time she is a little lady of frills and color.

A proverbial Johnny-on-the-spot, Justine's sixth sense must be overworked. She is always 
around when you want some one to talk to, a shoulder to cry on, or a partner in an escapade. 
Her patience and dependability seem unlimited, and complemented by her sense of humor, 
can change even the worst situation into "one of the times that we'll remember." Never 
known to neglect a duty or miss a party, Justine unites the intellectual and the frivolous. A 
mixture of shyness and affection, reserve and enthusiasm, she uses her talents for her friends'

Madelyn's gentle reserve and sudden laughter show that she is acquainted with humor as well 
as concentration. She has a determined calmness which is based on positive assurance. An 
important ethics problem or a current issue under discussion in the lounge can be quietly 
but surely settled by one of Madelyn's "tremendous" opinions. Her delightful and frequent 
renditions of Gershwin or a bit of the Petite Waltz have filled many in-between class intervals 
and helped to stage impromptu community sings. Above all, Madelyn is a portrait of sincerity, 
a study in serenity.

The color red is characteristic of Marion; she has its warmth, energy, gaiety and vivacity. 
Her 8:30 A.M. smile astounds the smoker; it is an institution. On tea dance days when it 
seems that nothing will ever be ready "exactly on time," Marion manages to do even the 
impossible. But the carefree, half-skipping trot and the spontaneous laugh may be misleading, 
for she has as many variations as the color has shades. Her depth and earnestness, an innate 
common sense, insure her of a proper sense of values. She lives completely.

conversation is complete without one of Tessie's tales, earnestly punctuated with her eyes and 
ardently climaxed with the famous McGrath grin. We all know her wonderful sense of humor 
and friendliness; even the Freshmen have learned to expect a smile from Tess at any hour 
of the day. Afternoon jaunts in the famous convertible, usually ending at McGraths' for 
anything from strawberry jam to steak, are typical of Tess. She is a lovable combination of 
humor, generosity and wisdom.

Listen for a naive remark in the middle of philosophy class, or a burst of laughter from the

for a casual chat with anyone she meets. Her ability to make people laugh has brightened 
even gloomy exam days. Yet in all her moments, Marna is sincere. And her warmth is 
founded on this sincerity. The honesty with which she approaches difficulties and her 
engaging simplicity make her a happy paradox.

Combine the virtues of rhythm, color and order, give them a cosmopolitan aura and you have 
an almost adequate description of Margarita. The fluid ease of her samba and rhumba, the 
striking individuality of her wardrobe, the charm of her gracious manner, make her the 
personification of the timeless senorita. She has a great respect for other people's opinions 
and will readily change her mind when she sees that reason is on the side of her opponent. 
Unaffected, Margie is kind and understanding with a flair for math and life.

Letty's special charm is a combination of the gaiety of Cuba and the practicality of America. 
Industriously she handles the idioms of French as deftly as the elements of chemistry and the

adapts herself to any group and is as eager to entertain as to be entertained. Her warm and

Charlotte is a living proof that happiness makes things easier. Intellectual, social and domestic 
tasks crowd her schedule. Confidently and easily she undertakes them all at once, relying on 
her amazing ability to finish things in no time at all. It is her smile that does it; she manages 
to keep her happy disposition no matter what, to provide talk and foolishness for everyone. 
She is ready to go anywhere with you at any time because she loves a lark and because people 
interest her. She likes them to be happy; she makes them so.

If you hear a unique singing voice, an account of "last" week-end or a "fourth-for-bridge" 
call in the Smoker, don't even bother to turn around; it will undoubtedly be Cathy. The 
speed of her decisions and willingness to take part in any adventure have quickened the 
pace of many otherwise quiet week-ends. She has had enough experiences to fill a life-time. 
A strict believer in the 10 o'clock rule, she manages to get things done though it often takes 
a long time to sit down to do them, and a trade-mark of capability marks everything she 
does. Cathy is a student, raconteur, comedienne and managing editor all rolled into one.

Barbara is a girl with a purpose, with an ideal. In her quiet and unassuming way, she 
accomplishes great tasks, amazes us with the strength of her determination, and tries to put 
perfection into even the insignificant details. Quality and precision are essential to her; 
time is irrelevant. Her thoughtful calmness and a surface obliviousness to the general 
commotion, hide her really deep emotions; she can put first things first, but don't mistake 
this for indifference. It is only the sign of her deep and firm convictions of truth gained 
from an arduous study of science.

"To be or not to be" is Sue's constant query. Questioning all things with the intelligent mind 
of the realist, Sue proves her point with positive conviction. Perhaps this clarity and 
questioning stems from her interest in literature. She reads discriminately, discusses 
maturely and is annoyed by classes after 11:20 A.M. She brings a zest and enthusiasm into 
everything she does. And whether it is an endless in-between snack or a dull afternoon, Sue 
can make it gay. Life is exciting for her because she makes it so.

Mary is as true a classic as those Latins with whom she has spent most of her Newton days 
. . . and nights. While most of us worry about the simple conjugations, "Squattie" has gone 
her own little way and mastered even the most difficult of the ancients. But her interest in 
antiquity never keeps her from getting the very latest scoop . . . days after the event. No, 
Squattie is incomparable: her infectious laughter and deceptively blank expression can never 
be duplicated, nor her sense of proper proportion between the important and the trivial.

complications or trouble involved. For Anne Marie has a formula for happiness which no

Mary is a natural for television. Her manner is both captivating and comical; she appears 
to be the type that policemen like to direct across the street. Her witty comments punctuated 
with her head and eyes are better than any staff of writers could turn out. She is completely 
at home on the stage; her portrayal of Bothwell and the Stage Manager were inimitable. Nor 
could many have succeeded in balancing so precisely our very complicated class budget, or in 
so tactfully persuading a reluctant florist that his margin of profit was far too wide.

"Never let a worry get you clown" is Betty's theme song. A stoic, she refuses to let herself or 
others be conquered by any situation. Those who deserve sympathy get it readily from Betty 
and those who don't are shown that their dilemmas really aren't so calamitous. Her insight 
into life is deep and her solutions to one's problems could not be more practical or sensible 
if prescribed by a psychiatrist. Hopping around, chuckling merrily, she turns our dark

Whoever said that opposites attract might have had Mary in mind, for although American 
in thought and action, she is fascinated by Spanish life and culture. This opposition is hard 
to resolve, particularly when it concerns a choice between Bernard Shaw and Cervantes and 
Hammerstein and Ravel. But whatever her decision, it is followed with a determination 
which will not be satisfied until she has reached her goal. A wealth of knowledge in the classics 
of both literature and art is most obvious during one of her famous lounge discussions. Mary 
is truly a "good neighbor".

Alice is one person who need never be concerned about neuroses. She refuses to get excited 
about anything that isn't really important. Her calmness has always amazed us, especially in 
the midst of exams or the thesis rush. No matter how soon the zero hour, there is always time 
to read the New Yorker or knit a few more rows. Yet somehow literary pursuits are never 
neglected for she manages to maintain a balance between the intellectual and the complacent. 
But her composure can be broken. When it is, the convictions that she expresses demand

We came to Newton on September 10th, 1917. We were second in command. Although 
we had not the distinction of being the first class, we had every advantage in being second. 
There was experience and wisdom to teach us; there was love and humor to guide us. We 
watched carefully those about us, for they were Newton and we wanted to be a part of it. 

Our first chance came early in October. We faced initiation day and the long list of 
instructions that were posted for us. Salaaming, singing, laughing, we spent a wonderful 
day, and were quite refreshed when Mimi watered the fleurs. But we could be serious, we 
could be wise, for soon we chose our officers with Mimi as our president. We could be 
spirited; for we watched Archbishop dishing lay the cornerstone for the new building and 
felt the reality of being part of a living, growing organism. 

And we could be gay. We planned the Christmas tea dance for weeks as our first gift to 
the Sophomore class. We made good use of our sudden unlimited permission (daily 
liberty), toured the city, and became authorities on everything in Boston. 

For months we scrambled up snowbanks to elude on-coming cars. For weeks we mis- 
interpreted Auden's subtle lines. For days we crammed for the music exam. 

Soon we were ready to pass on to the new freshman all the fun of that year, the washing 
of tea dishes, the carrying of chairs. We passed on to them traditions we had helped to 
make. We passed on our love for Newton. 

It was not long before we had the chance to assert our authority . . . there was a third class 
at Newton. Early one morning, "Eight Beatitudes" were published and immediately, as 
Sophomores, we became "honorable". The title didn't last but the feeling did. We had 
Sophomoritis. We cheered the banishment of the ten o'clock lights, then went to bed at the 
bell. Confident in our superiority, we challenged the freshmen to a hockey game . . . the 
victory was not easily won. In basketball we were defeated by the Harvard Crimsons, even 
by the faculty; we ascribed it to trickery. Our class entertainment had neither "art nor 
dignity"; it claimed just "laughs and hilarity". We were called upon to present tableaux for 
Reverend Mother's feast and almost proved we could manipulate scenery, change costumes, 
and ride donkeys, in the dark. The donkey fooled us! The exhibit and lecture by Alan 
Crite fascinated us; we bought his book and sought his autograph. We looked for money 
to buy "Our Lady in the Subway," then found we didn't have to. In a building drive, we 
took to magazines and forced subscriptions on nearly everyone we knew. Then it was June 
and the year was over. We were Juniors . . . we were wiser, less foolish. 

We had won the caps and gowns of upper classmen and we tried to assume the dignity and 
poise that went with them. We slipped on our rings; great things were promised. We had 
responsibilities; we were junior sisters. We were introduced to Father Friel and St. Thomas 
and we tried to rise to the occasion. We found time for skiing at North Conway, for frequent 
theatre trips, for the series of marriage lectures, for Paragon Park and the roller coaster. 

Our greatest triumph was Junior Weekend. No one knows how, but we managed it. We 
cut paper hearts and twisted crepe paper, then kidnapped Junior to put them up for us. 
We chilled ginger ale in the snow. Writing, directing, practising, we produced our own 
version of "South Pacific" . . . "To Dick and Oscar go apologies", but it was fun. 

The biggest event of the year for everyone was Commencement Week. It was not our 
graduation, to be sure, but it was the first, and it had to be perfect. We toasted the 
Seniors at a banquet; then we buried them in a prophetic graveyard with Gray's Elegy. The 
Baccalaureate Procession stretched far behind us— students, faculty, the Archbishop. From 
the great height of the Harriman porch, we serenaded the Seniors. We heard their gay 
answers, then their final refrain, and saw them light the candles of the Sophomores. 

We carried chairs to the front lawn of Duchesne and prayed that it wouldn't rain. That 
evening as the Archbishop conferred the degrees, we scanned the skies. We sang "The Waters 
Flow Along" and rushed everything inside . . . but it was a success . . . Newton's first 
graduation. And we were Seniors. 

As Seniors we ruled supreme— with dignity, justice and mercy, we hoped. It was strange to 
us at first; the campus had grown, the buildings were changed, the chapel enlarged, but 
we realized that essentially Newton was still the same, and we were prepared to appreciate 
it completely. 

We searched for culture, read numberless books and attended symphony rehearsals and 
matinees, the ballet and the opera. We caroled at Christmas time and wrote theses by 

We guided the young but succumbed to youthful energy on the hockey field. For one 
evening we forgot the seriousness proper to Seniors to present a musical Snow White with 
each of her seven dwarfs and all her animals. It was gay and we "filled the world with 
sunshine." The Alumnae returned for a day to survey our rule. We welcomed them here and 
joined them in the Louis XIV Bail-Room. They spoke of jobs and graduate schools . . . 
we listened. 

The great event of the year was the one hundred and fiftieth Anniversary of the Society of 
the Sacred Heart. With other Convents all over the world we celebrated this great festival. 
Archbishop Gushing reminded us of our heritage, our responsibilities; we heard him and 
promised. We carry this promise with us through graduation, through life.

full-fledged Newtonians. From the first you were independent, teaching us self-reliance . . . 
yet you supported us in everything we did. You relieved us of our "honored" task of carrying 
chairs, helped put over our Junior Weekend, feted us in a royal manner. You gave us

who benefited most from this trade. Your humor, ambition and spirit made us glad that 
we were your sister class and proud that you would some day wear the "red" ring. Your 
frolicsome circus, complete with trainer and animals, made it evident that you would always 
be a class to be remembered. Your renditions of the Charleston proved to us that your 
"originality" was on a par with ours. And now we hand down to you our caps and gowns and

You are the youngest, and already you have carried your share of chairs, spent hours 
cleaning the Smoker^and acted as general handy man. These menial tasks are over now and 
you can look forward to what the books call "college life." We hope that this "life" will 
mean as much to you as it did to us. For it is strange and sometimes terrible, only 
appreciated in retrospect.

" ... of interior life and reparation ..." 

A Child of Mary of the Sacred Heart pledges herself to aim at a perfect Christian life. 
Her promise consecrates her to the fullest service of Jesus Christ and His interests, in 
whatever state of life the Divine Will of God may place her, in imitation of Our Lady, and 
under her protection. She knows that Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is also her Mother, that 
all spiritual growth depends on her, that she alone can give Jesus Christ and lead souls to 
Him. Consequently with the whole strength of her faith and the ardour of her love, she 
entrusts herself to Our Lady's action, to her guidance and protection. The motto of the 
Congregation, engraved on its medal, sums up the spirit that ought always to distinguish it: 
"Cor meum jungatur vobis". It shows too, that it is by the mediation of the Heart of Mary that 
her children will respond truly to the burning desire of the Heart of Jesus. Everywhere when 
Children of Mary meet, their medal will be the sign of that charity which unites them all 
over the world.

The only true government is self-government. Newton's Student Government is self- 
government but more important it is government of self. Possessing certain delegated 
powers, this council is conducted with the co-operation and interest of the faculty. Thus 
the students are encouraged to assume responsibility for their views and conduct. At weekly 
meetings attended by the entire student body all matters concerning rules, order, duties and 
penalties are discussed, resolved, and carried out by loyal officers, always ready to co-operate 
with College Authorities. We know that Student Government, through this loyalty and 
co-operation, through its fidelity to the traditions and to the spirit of the Sacred Heart, will 
continue to show itself worthy of the trust that has been placed in it.

Aiming at the control of the social activities of the college and the influencing of public 
opinion through contact and discussion, this committee organizes our dances, week-end parties, 
and other social events. All that relates to good manners and the amenities of social intercourse 
is the business of the members, who regulate such matters by discussing opinions, promul- 
aating decisions, solving difficulties and expressing disapproval through Social Censures. 
Public entertainments, lectures and other special undertakings are subject to their approval, 
and they are a clearing-house for suggestions in matters concerning the common welfare. At 
once impartially criticizing and carefully organizing, they are prime contributors to the well- 
being of Newton.

Through the Catholic Action organization the entire college is directed to acts of apostolic 
zeal, both on and off the campus. The Mission Croup, Inter-Racial and Choir are individual 
units of this program and work in conjunction with it. Our activity is directed further to 
teaching altar boys, reading to the blind and providing books for hospital patients. Nor 
are the poor neglected, for we provide clothes, food and toys whenever possible. Only a plea 
is necessary to effect an immediate response from the group.

towards the spread of Christ's 
gospel throughout foreign lands 
and the desolate sections of our 
country. Since prayer is our most 
valuable tool, we have set aside 
Tuesday as Mission Day on which 
Masses and Communions are 
offered for those less fortunate 
than ourselves. With letters and 
gifts, the Spiritual Mothers of this 
club keep alive the spark of faith 
in the hearts of the Indian 
Children of our country. They 
supply used stamps and money to 
aid the work of the missioners. 
Understanding it themselves, the 
club has made us aware of our

The aim of this group is the establishment of strong principles of inter-racial charity and 
justice in the minds of all. They do apostolic work at Blessed Sacrament Mission Church 
with the Negro children, arranging the library, teaching arts and crafts, organizing picnics and 
parties. Inter-Racial Week, in which artists and lecturers of all races present their talents and 
views, have become a tradition at Newton. No group is too small to influence those with 
whom they come into contact, by firm, just convictions about our relations and duty toward 
other races.

In this era of conflicting forces, it is important for us as Catholic women to form intelligent 
opinions based on true principles and accurate knowledge. The International Relations Club 
provides us with the means for a better understanding of the world, its problems, and all 
current events, by discussion and critical reading. To insure its members a wide range of 
ideas, and to give them the opportunity to share their own with others, conferences and 
panel discussions are often held with various colleges.

strength through unity: a union in 
the National Federation of Catholic 
College Students. Here we learn 
and re-learn the necessity for 
co-operation and the miracles 
wrought by it— especially when one 
is working for God. 

We are proud of the achieve-

"... the sweep of its serene light ..." 

Golden notes carry high the mutual comradeship found and cherished in music. We, of the 
Glee Club, aspired to great things; we practiced. For the one hundred and fiftieth anni- 
versary of the Society of the Sacred Heart we presented a cantata composed in honor of St. 
Madeline Sophie and appropriately entitled Yesterday and Forever. We caroled on Boston 
Common and at Providence College. Slaves to timing and pitch, we produced our biggest 
undertaking of the year, the original opera, Hansel and Gretel. And through it all, we sang 
hearts behind each note, standing on tiptoe to reach that "A" and, somehow, always succeeding.

In flagrant violation of Shakespeare's warning "to give thy thoughts no tongue," we have 
sought in the drama an outlet for our varied talents. Participating in every phase of theatrical 
activity, producing, directing, staging, costuming, and acting, the members of this group 
enjoy limitless opportunities for creative thinking. The first play of the season truly belonged 
to Newton, for it was written by Mother Maguire; it was presented during the 
Sesquicentennial Anniversary Celebration of the Society of the Sacred Heart. The Townley 
Christmas Play and The Parade at the Devil's Bridge were equally successful but 
the presentation of Anderson's Mary of Scotland, as part of the pre-Commencement pro- 
gram, topped them all. And more than part of our success belongs to Miss "Teddy" Mulkern 
who became our Dramatic Coach this year and who was always ready to "slave" with us.

The Athletic Association includes the entire student body in its

most of the time; but there are various side issues such as modern 
dancing, Swedish exercises, archery, badminton and tennis. In 
inter-collegiate games with Regis, Boston College Nursing School 
. . . and Harvard, Newton has a good record considering her youth. 
Perhaps, the games that arouse the most feeling are the inter-class

Newton's literary magazine is representative of the best creative writing that has been done 
during the year. From the selections submitted by students in the creative writing classes, 
the short story class, the required English courses and also the work that others do for 
their own pleasure, the staff gathers the wheat and the cockle. The result is a mixture of 
poetry, literary essays and just plain humor.

We consumed crates of oranges, used reams of paper, chewed scores of pencils and suffered 
jangled nerves. We figured proportions, re-wrote write-ups, drove the general public to 
distraction and cancelled checks but we succeeded . . . almost on time. We have tried to present 
graphically what Newton means to us; it is an inadequate presentation, but it may serve 
to remind us, lest we forget. 

None the less: 
Off to press.
